“What's not to like about a duck!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We had taken a Duck Tour in Boston so we knew what to expect. I bought a duck honker for my 12 yr old granddaughter (lots of laughs) which she thought was a hoot! They are a fun bunch of people, know the areas and prompt all when to holler and toot!. Going around Union Lake was nice. Really interesting info about the house boats - lake houses which I never would have known otherwise. It was a crummy day - kinda chilly and windy. They provide blankets and we wrapped ourselves up against the wind (as did most everyone else).

So happy you joined us! Wacky Quackers are definitely a must on the tour. Sounds like it was a cold day, glad we had blankets on board to keep you warm!

“Fun Tour”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Our Captain was Leonardo DiQuackio, which gives you an idea of the flavor of this tour. He was great! I'm always impressed how the folks who do this must have to repeat the same patter over and over and yet they still make it sound fresh. He offered a lot of interesting facts about the City and it's history. It was a fun 90 minutes and we enjoyed the musical sound track. Dress in layers though. The bus has open air windows and it was pretty chilly on the water in April.

“Great way to see the city!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

If you like corny jokes, then sign up. Not only is the tour informative and a lot of fun, but it is the best way to get an overview of the whole city.

“A Musical Way to Visit Seattle”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

My family and I just loved the tour! Our driver, was crazy and had many, many jokes about the city, but also lots of neat facts about Seattle. He kept the action going with many musical changes and the audience definitely got involved. It takes about an hour to get around the city and onto Lake Union for the "Duck" version of the tour. It was a unique and interesting way to see Seattle. We loved it a lot. Book online early or you may have to wait for a seat.
